No need for a rest day?

According to acting Minister of Manpower Gan Kim Yong, there is no need for a mandatory rest day for maids.

I think the government should re-work his contract – keep him at his high pay of a million dollars a year but ensure he works weekends with no days off. There’s no need for him to take a day off, right? After all… earning so much money already, must live in a nice place, why would he need a day off?

One response to this post.

  1. that is pretty shocking that Gan Kim Yong has come out to put it so bluntly. He takes into account the assumption that just because all employers a qualified (after the compulsory FDW test), that all employers will be good on their word to provide rest days somehow? Hhhmmm…
